Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is having a rough month. After the end of another dismal season at the Garden, the 32-year-old reportedly separated this week from La La Anthony, his wife of seven years.
Now, a day after TMZ broke the separation news, it’s dug a little deeper and found out why: Carmelo apparently got a stripper pregnant.
TMZ says “the other woman often works at a gentlemen’s club in NYC, and we’re told she’s claiming to be 6 and a half months pregnant with Melo’s child.”
No wonder La La moved out. The former Total Request Live host and current actress is reportedly still living in NYC. Carmelo might be leaving town soon though. Earlier this week, Knicks president Phil Jackson suggested that it’s time for the the team to part with its biggest star.
Though the initial reports said that divorce hadn’t been discussed, TMZ’s latest says “there’s virtually zero chance of a reconciliation.” No surprise there. A 13-year relationship can withstand a lot of challenges, and by all accounts Melo and La La have been through plenty of their own, but it’s hard to come back from knocking up another woman.
